WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GreatHorn, provider of the only email security platform that protects organizations before, during, and after an email attack, today announced that GreatHorn Email Security has been recognized as a finalist in the “Best Email Security Solution” Trust Award category for the 2020 SC Awards. Now in its 23rd year, the SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services.
“We’re honored to be recognized as one of the best email security solutions by SC Media,” said Kevin O’Brien, CEO of GreatHorn. “Email-based attacks are still the primary method attackers use to gain entry into an organization, and legacy email security solutions have failed to categorically address business email compromise. Our platform provides comprehensive threat protection both pre- and post-delivery to protect workers from advanced spear phishing attacks at every stage of the email lifecycle.”
Traditionally, email security technologies have focused exclusively on prevention – perimeter tools that block and prevent mail from reaching users who are often deemed as “weak links.” GreatHorn approaches email security differently, employing a variety of threat detection techniques, automated response actions, and simplified remediation capabilities to protect inboxes both before and after a message component such as a URL has been weaponized. The GreatHorn platform empowers end users and security teams by minimizing exposure to threats with better detection, providing real-world phishing education in the form of in-line warnings, banners, and messages, and coupling that with stellar two-click email incident response capabilities.
“Every new year brings with it an unpredictable mix of adversity and opportunity for information security professionals,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “In 2019, we watched as software supply chain attacks grew bigger and bolder, DNS hijacking campaigns threatened the very integrity of the internet, and targeted ransomware attacks disrupted the operations of cities, school districts and organizations in the health care, industrial and transportation sectors. Through it all, this year’s SC Awards finalists found ways to break boundaries, overcome challenges and contribute fresh new ideas to the world of cybersecurity.”
With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of cybersecurity professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers who offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Trust Award category.
"The cybersecurity vendor space is growing ever more crowded, but this year's Trust Award finalists have differentiated themselves by offering best-in-class capabilities and user-friendly experiences," added Armstrong of SC Media. “For this reason, GreatHorn has earned its place among the top solution providers in its category.”
The finalists and winners for the Trust Awards are chosen by an expert panel of more than 60 judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry and the SC Labs product reviews team. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on February 25, 2020 in San Francisco.
